Travels with my brother


My brother Barry is the master of the long, lonely car trip. His most recent one took him up through the Yukon Territory into the Arctic Circle.

Here he is at the sign that told him he’d arrived in the Arctic. My husband Murray thought the signmakers missed an opportunity in making so rectangular a sign to depict a circle. I have to agree. They should have taken that arc and pushed it all the way around.

I suppose this other shot is a hotel, motel or guest-house room up north. The chair is made of moose antlers. If Alice in Wonderland had lived in Alaska, this is what her wing chair would have looked like.
